Day one with a new camera. Working with this incredible smaller package. I am looking for a smaller, lighter camera to take with me to Peru, in addition to the d3s and d700. I know that there will be some days when I will not want to lug around a heavy dslr. I’ve tried the Nikon p7100 and I was disappointed. The images were grainy and not at all the quality I wanted. That camera was returned. I’m trying the Fujifilm – XPRO-1 now and a more detailed review will be posted once I’ve learned more about it and have practiced, practiced and practiced… did I say practice? I believe that my camera must become an extension of my vision, of my body in order to create the images I do. I must know how to work the camera, evaluate the light, capture my subject all in a split second. Working with this camera will require a learning curve and I’m up for the challenge. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll try the Boston Marathon…
Here are a few images from the first attempt. And, then on to editing the lovely Newton Country Day senior from yesterday, post to follow.
I followed this couple for a while. They had such a cute gait. They just rocked from side to side as they walked.
I need to get this sharper and more in focus, but I loved the image just the same. Colors are untouched.
